I have a rooted phone as well and have been moving the non-native apps using the stock app manager. I've noticed that when moved to the SD card, the app sizes decrease significantly. For example, Metamorph was on my phone with an application size of 716KB, and when moved to SD, it went down to 104KB.
Can someone explain why this happens?
